About Support Services for Veteran Families

The goal of the SSVF program is to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing. SSVF-providers offer a range of short-term services that include outreach, case management, assistance in obtaining VA and other public benefits, and temporary financial assistance (e.g. rental assistance, security deposits, moving costs).

Basic Eligibility Requirements

*Meeting basic eligibility criteria does not guarantee SSVF services. Furthermore, agencies offering SSVF services may have additional criteria to determine eligibility and to prioritize the delivery of services.*
